WITH LOVING HEARTS
"There weren't many things that Mrs. Milligan did not know about Bedford High School. It's
hard to imagine the number and variety of questions that crossed that counter in the Student Office,
but Mrs. Milligan had answers for them all. She held herself to an uncompromising standard. She
tamed the information monster and managed the office menagerie with skill and quiet strength. Her
quiet humility made her capacity for detail and organization an almost unnoticed commodity- but a
priceless one at that.
There weren't many things that Mrs. Milligan did not know about Bedford High School. She
knew the kids. She knew whose parent was sick, and who, after graduating, was living with whom;
who was pregnant and who went to which university. She was an encyclopedia of absence excuses.
She took it all in, day after day, week after week, year after year. She knew virtually every student's
name, and their knowing that she knew made their interaction with the office especially personal.
Yet with all that knowledge, there was never a question of anyone's confidentiality being
compromised. Mrs. Milligan was a woman of immeasurable honesty, caring and integrity.
As a private person, Mrs. Milligan may not have been well known by many, but those of us who
knew her were lucky to have our lives decorated with the Milliganisms that we came to know and
love: her passion for hummus and her fabulous homemade soups; her talent with fabric and yarn, her
impeccable taste; and above all, her love of family, her husband, and her motherly pride. She was a
generous heart who always gave. She gave when she was sick as well as when she was well. She
was the voice of BHS for almost two decades. She was our Mrs. M, and we miss her dearly."

This past summer I went to Trinidad on a mission
trip. I spent a week running a VBS (Vacation Bible
School), visiting an orphanage and rehabilitation
center, doing construction work, and learning
about the Trinidadian culture. I did similar work in
eighth grade, so it was interesting to see what was

during the service, strangers were embracing

made, it was all genuine friendliness. Finally,
Trinidad was a great reminder to slow down. In
their culture, life is not run by a tight schedule that
consumes many Americans. Instead, they relish in
"limin", their term for relaxing. So my advice to
everyone is to "lime." :)

Over the summer Apple Seibert and her two sisters, Maddie
and Lizzie, went on an 1 80-mile bike trip to Greenfield NY,
near Saratoga Springs. On all tups there are ups and downs.
The best part according to Apple was "having sing-alongs while
biking through the mountains". Maddie and Lizzie agreed that
breakfast was the best part, especially "in all the cool diners".
The worst part was "getting up early" because "every day was
so completely exhausting" agreed Maddie and Lizzie. Apple on

that they met some interesting people. "We met a lot of

This year we've entered a new chapter in our lives. A chapter that many of us were scared to face, yet all
of us have made it through successfully! This year was different for you; the environment, the classes, and
possibly even you have changed, yourself. High school is a journey all about finding out who you truly are,
expressing yourself.and making mistakes. Through this journey, life will throw unexpected challenges; but
we are all on this journey together. Let's make this journey a memorable one!

Co-Captain Sally Waters on Believing...
"As a small school in the DCL, we go against really
tough competitors, so we need to come together as
a team; we don't have superstars, so we need to
believe that working as a team will get us through.
When we stayed together and remembered the
strong bonds we had as a team, we did well. If we let
ourselves forget the team, and stopped believing we
could do it through pure will power and teamwork,
we made mistakes. "
How was believing a big part of our
success this season?
"Without belief, we would be nothing. We
believed in ourself and in each other; being
part of the soccer team means knowing that
you are going to make mistakes. You know
that these mistakes could be costly, but also
that your teammates will always be there to
console you, back you up, and make up for

A. This year the indoor track had a lot of people
break their personal records and qualify for
states. A few people even qualified for a special

where she placed 12th overall.

Volleyball DCL Champs!
"We made history this year. It was an
amazing thing to see how far our hard work
and team unity could get us. Walking into the

with our year on it, that's such a proud
moment. I am so incredibly proud of us."

I shot-put champion!
I only started indoor track because I wanted to do something to
teep in shape for softball, and for something to do. So I taught
nyself every thing I know now about shot-put, and trained with my
lister. That year I was the only freshman to qualify for states and
von DCL All-Star. My sophomore year I qualified for states again,
ind I placed in the top 6 which qualified me for All-States. Again that
ear I was awarded with DCL All-Star for being the only indoor
rack athlete to make All-States. But this year, my junior year, was
ny most successful year so far. I was tired of having to throw the
hot-put outside in the cold and having it get stuck in the snow and
ny hands freezing. So I purchased my own indoor shot-put. I
rained, and worked hard to push myself each practice, and though
he season overall wasn't a good one for me, I qualified for a special
nvitational meet. I then went on and qualified for the next level,
vhich was a special elite meet in which of all 4 divisions only the top
14 qualified for it. Using my new indoor shot-put I worked by myself
md trained for states. At the states meet, on my very first throw I
hrew 36 ft. 3 1/4 inches. This blew my old personal record out of
he water and I was able to win Division 4 States. At All-States I
laced 12th overall. Winning Division 4 States led to my winning
XL All-Star for the 3rd year in a row.
Rachel Dushman holds onto her
division 2 state champion title!
It was an injury freshmen year that introduced me to the sport
of diving. Since that point in time, I truly fell in love with the
sport as I'd never imagined possible. It provides me with a sense
of freedom and exhilaration, as there is no better feeling than
learning a new dive and truly perfecting an old one. Being a part
of a high school team, making friends, and contributing to the
team is a great feeling which has left me with a great sense of
accomplishment. Learning to master my fears in diving has
helped make me a more secure and confident person in life, and
is something I will be forever grateful for. It was through
dedication, discipline, and great coaching that I was able to
accomplish all the goals I had set for myself in this sport. This
year as a senior, I was able to win DCL All-Star for the second
time in a row, as well as to become the defending two time
MIAA Division 2 State Champion, breaking the BHS 1 1 dive
school record with a score of 489.05 in the process. Winning
States for my second time this year, receiving my second
consecutive Boston Globe All-Scholastic award, and breaking the
BHS record was undeniably the perfect ending to a wonderful
four years at BHS, and is something I will carry with me for the
rest of my life
Activities fair allows
students to sample bits
and pieces of the many
clubs that happen around
My eight years at BHS and the LABBB program have provided me with a very different
perspective than most students. I have seen the kids I began my school yearswith graduate and I
made friends with a new group several times over. The turning-22 program at I.ABBB keeps us in
high school until 22 and in some ways I saw the school from a teacher's perspective^rceting ne^
great seniors every year. My most enjoyable experience was the role of high school football
manager with coaches Belcher, McGrath and Zellner. My brother and I went to the Patriots
training camp when we were seven years old and we love football. It was great to win the DCL
championship last year. I have also learned a lot from participation in the Principal's Advisory
Council with Mr. Sills who is the coolest man in the school. I also served on the Superintendent's
Advisory Council and have been the head working classmate.

parents for dealing with me and loving me no matter what. I know it's
not always easy but you've both done it amazingly well. Dell, thanks

of myself. Jkk. You're awesome and everyone knows it. Thank you so
much. Lucia, for absolutely everything. You're my best friend and the
most amazing sister, I don't know any other college student who
would get up at 5:30 to skype with her sister on the first day of
senior year. You've made my whole life and I can't thank you enough.
To anyone I forgot: I'll thank you if you don't mention that I forgot
l have thought about whom I am going to thank with these mere 175
words and I can't decide. So, I'm going to stereotypically thank everyone
possible. I would like to thank every single member of my family, Sam, my
parents, all my teachers. Sundertal, Donnelly (DON BON). Big Griff,
Bosch, my friends. P-Co. T Baby. Bad Ass B, A-bomb. Bergman.

BHS or lived in Bedford. America (and I mean the real America), George
W, BK, Wendy's. Taco Bell, the ever so tasty Micks, Flo Rida (Specifically
for the greatest song of all time, Low). Juanes, Ben Rose on BHS Live, life
without thinking about consequences, never losing at bowling or risk,
Coach Diz's fresh kicks. JOE KIM (How could I forget him), things that
don't even phase me, ping pong, the entire tennis team, and most of all the
Wow, Senior Year. It's been a crazy ride, and there are a few people I'd
like to thank. To my Mom and Dad, thank you for sheltering me,
supporting me, and raising me to be the person I am today. To my
teachers-it's been real. To Mr, Felker-Thank you for nurturing my love of
music, and thanks for the helping me be a drum major - I'm honored that I
was even chosen. To Mr. Bosch etto-your level 7 history class was hard,
but the DC trip and Psych make it worthwhile. To my friends: you know
who you are. Anyone I've played music with, had class with, or just chilled
with has helped to change my life, no doubt Crew, NHD, 2009 Eurotnp,
yearbook. AFS, etc. - It's just been amazing. Then there's the marching
band.... You guys are an awesome bunch of people. Brye, Carl, Holly,

such an amazing and loving person as you are in my life. I can talk to you
and tell you everything - I can't do it with a lot of people but can with you.

to your love of running. If it weren't for you I wouldn't be a runner. ALEX:

me a lot. SAM: You're so kind and you'll always be my baby brother. You

strong open-minded individual that I am today and all I can do is thank
you. I am sad but also ecstatic to see my run in the Bedford Public
School system come to an end; and I can finally stop writing "K -12" on
school forms. I hope every one of my classmates looks happily forward
into the coming years and I wish you excel at whatever you wish to do
Mom and Dad. I can't thank you enough for supporting me throughout
my high school years. You guys have been and I know always will be

Mom and Dad- Thank you for teaching me persistence and allowing me to
be independent. By doing these things, I will never give up on my pursuits. I
love you. Kathenne- Over the years we have learned to enjoy each other's
company and share a bond that I wish we had formed earlier. You are the
most caring, understanding and silly person I know and I have always
looked up to you. You are a great role model and the best guide I could
ever ask for m this world. Thank you for teaching me compassion. I love
you, big sis. Friends- You have made my life in Bedford enjoyable. From A
Place to Grow to high school, we've shared laughs and boredom, ndes
home and McDoubles, a bus to Wawa and teachers. You guys are the
reason that I loved growing up here and the reason why I would want to
come back. Thanks.
Thank you to the people, places, and music that made me lonely - inspired
me • provoked me - helped me up. To the people who came and went and
kept me company in the wee hours, and to the teachers who truly taught.

YYYOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUU that ternbly understates how much I

has to live up to some pretty high standards. Good luck. Class of '1 1!

Ching Hua Chang
In a world where some students risk their lives to attend school. Bedford
High School has provided me with a solid foundation upon which I can
further my education, and for that I am extremely thankful. Paul Krugman
once said that the world is more competitive now than ever, but I am
confident that with the start BHS has given me I have nothing to fear. A
school, however, is nothing but a collection of individuals, and without the
classmates with whom I've spent the last four years, BHS would not be
BHS The atmosphere created by our student body made school feel so
much more worthwhile, so for that I would like to thank you all. Finally. I
would like that thank my parents Steve and Michelle Chtu and my sister
Christie for constantly encouraging me to push the limits and realty
discover what I am capable of. All that I ever was. am. and ever hope to be
is due to the support they have given me

I would like to thank my parents, my family, and my friends who have
helped and supported me throughout my school years, especially the past
four. My mom and dad have believed in me and encouraged me m every
way possible throughout my childhood; I can never repay them for their
actions and kindness. My family and friends have made my life remarkable
and exciting, and given me all the memories I will cherish eternally. High
school has provided me with many opportunities, and I greatly appreciate
all the teachers and faculty who have made those opportunities possible. I
thank all the teachers who have taught me so much and helped me chase
my academic passions. I would especially like to thank the teachers who
have dedicated their time to the robotics team and science team, as well as
those who have made my experiences m musical ensembles and festivals
possible. If not for all these astounding people in my life. I would not be
where I am or the person I am today.
I want to thank my friends and family for making high school a more
enjoyable experience. I seriously could not have done it without you guys.
As Art Buchwald once said, "Whether it's the best of times or the worst of
times, it's the only time we have." Live it up, peeps.
I did it." First of all I want to thank God, because without him I wouldn't be
here today. Next, the person I love the most in this world, the person that
showed the most belief in me; my mother. Can't forget about my father,
who has never given up on me. Also have to give thanks to my supporting
grandmother. Shout out to my little sister Shaquana Deas
for waking me up every morning for school, I love you. Mrs. Luke, I didn't
forget about you. Thanks for the guidance and help through out the school
year(s). To my loving and caring METCO director. I love you. I will always
remember my class. Class of 20 1 1 .

I want to thank all of the great teachers I have had at BHS, especially
those who inspired me to do my best work, not just for a grade but also
for the experience. To my family- you are my best friends, and I couldn't
ask for a better mom or brother. You are always there for me. and I can't
thank you enough for everything that you have given me. I would also like
to thank my amazing friends, who I couldn't live without. We've had so
much fun together, and you have all made me into a better person. "If ever
there is tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must
always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you
seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if
we're apart, I'll always be with you." - A.A. Milne.
I have to start this by simply saying thank you to my family, in particularly
my mom and dad. Thank you for putting up with me all these years. Then I
need to go on to say thank you to my brother Chrts and other older
brother in Alex Russo. Chris. I haven't said this enough. I'm happy you're
my older brother and thankful for it every day. I love you. Russo thank
you for all those years of guidance and advice when Chris didn't know
what to say. Thank you Grandma, you mean the world to me. Thank you.

the best friends I could have ever asked for and have changed my life m
small but important ways. I would like to extend this thanks to all the
members of my track teams through the years and all the other people I
call my friends. Thanks again everyone for all the help you've grven me.
Words cannot articulate how thankful I am for my family, friends, and
teachers. I could not have made it this far through my life without your
love and support. To my friends: Vanessa Carlton's lyrics say. "In these
broken time it's so easy to forget, so I sing to remind upon my shoulder
you can rest, cause I'll always give you my best.' I like to think that life is
like outer space; constant movement of planets, comets, and stars and
sudden changes that are out of anyone's control. To counteract the
spontaneity and action, we have friends who are like gravity; we keep each
other grounded. Without you as my gravity I don't know where I would
be floating off to. I love you all so much and wish everyone the best!
"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start
today and make a new end"! From kindergarten to senior year I couldn't
ask for a better school experience. I want to thank my family by helping
me get through life with little struggle. Mommy. You helped me through
the years of life when I needed you; you were always there for me to
count on when I had hard times. Daddy. The advice you gave me really
helped and guided my way through reality, you were also there for me
when I needed you. Dernc, your a wonderful big brother and you taught
me a lot. you helped me look at life in so many ways that I couldn't
imagine. Derek II. the best little brother ever, you always make me laugh
even when I'm really upset, you help me get through my rough days.
Grandma & Grandpa. Thanks for always believing m me when I didn't
believe in myself. Thanks and I love you all so much.

Throughout high school I have had many influences m my life, beginning
with my parents. I will be forever grateful for their constant love, support,
and endless encouragement Their countless hours driving me to
gymnastics practice, watching soccer games, track meets, drve meets, and
supporting my late night projects, have helped me reach my full potential.
While their advice and high expectations might not have always been
appreciated. I now realize it was one of the contributing influences that
helped motivate me A huge thanks goes to my number one fans, my
grandparents, and my unde. for all their love and support of everything I
do. To all my coaches, who supported my dreams and reinforced the
importance of hard work and discipline, patence and teamwonk, I thank
you. Last but not least thanks to all my friends for simpry being there,

"Life is a journey not a destination"- Ralph Waldo Emerson, I think of high
school as the last leg of the first part of my journey. I've learned a lot about
myself over these past four years and I'm ready to move forward. Thank

making them memorable. This time of my life has taught me a lot about

without: my family. I know I may complain and drag my feet, but you

be graduating this year. Also, there are certain teachers that I am glad I've
gotten to know: Mr, Rose and Mr. Nrven. Mr Rose, you know how
important a role you've played. I don't need to go into detail. And. Mr.
Niven, you are by far the best teacher I've ever had. I've never had such a
good time in English class, and I'm glad you were my teacher. And. last but
not least, my fnends. I wish I had enough space to talk about each of you
in depth, but 175 words isn't much. You guys have always been there for
me, and you know who you are, I can't thank you guys enough. So long
Bedford High School, you'll be missed. Dernnis.
To kick things off. I would like to thank my parents. They are the best
parents in the world and everyday I am thankful they are always gong to
be there for me no matter what. Second. I woukj like to thank my brother
for always having my back on everything. Next I would like to thank every
single one of my friends. Without them I thmk I would go absolutely
insane. But like I said in the beginning. I thank my parents more than
anything and anyone in the world. My parents are the reason why I am
who I am and I am unique.

Mom and dad - thank you so much for your limitless encouragement,
patience, and just being there for me. I know sometimes I can be a major
pain, but luckily things always seem to work out in the end, Thomas - my
brain is now fully crammed with fun, not-so-fun, and occasionally downright
silly memories of time spent together. I still have no idea how you
managed to grow so big, but regardless it's been a lot of fun having you as
a younger brother all these years. Grandma - I think it goes without
saying that my life would be infinitely duller if you weren't a part of it. All
of my teachers - thank you all for opening my eyes to so many new
concepts and ideas. I've really enjoyed my 4 years at BHS. All of my
friends - hopefully by the time any of you read this I'll be accepted into
college and never have to see any of you ever again... ok. no. Let me try
that again. Bedford really wouldn't be the same if it weren't for all of you
and I'll definitely miss you next year. Good luck in the future.
Mom and Dad- Thanks for always being there for me whether it was on
the baseball field or in school, You guys were always there when I needed
support or guidance. Even though we fight sometimes I love you guys and
appreciate everything you guys do for me. Kevin- Even though we fight a
lot, we have lots of good memories and it has been fun while we have
been in high school together. Enjoy your junior and senior years and stay
out of trouble! Cody and Becca- Thanks for being such good friends. We
have had lots of good memories in high school together and I hope that
they continue into college. Love you guys, Baseball Team- Thanks for all the
good times and laughs we shared during the season. Class of 201 1- Thanks
for all the memories we have had together through high school. It's been a
great ride and it doesn't have to be over just because high school is coming
to an end. Congratulations everyone we did it. GB!

guidance, and the unconditional love. I couldn't have made it all this way

thanks for being so incredibly cool, You have shown me what it means to

through love, lessons, moralities, attention, and wonderful homemade

"Procrastination usually results in sorrowful regret. Today's duties put off
until tomorrow give us a double burden to bear; the best way is to do
them in their proper time." (Ida Scott Taylor). Throughout my lifetime I've
always procrastinated no matter what it was whether it was school work
or chores around the house. Even with this procrastination I've had the
support of my family and friends. I want to thank all my teachers for
everything they've taught me, my friends Marcos, Desiree, Sophie, Jessica,
Manny, and everyone else for all the great times we had no matter what
we were doing. Most importantly I would like to thank my mom and dad
for everything they've done for me and always being there whenever I
needed you. No matter where life takes us I hope all of you have a good
future and stay in contact. Thank you everybody for everything we've
done together. Once again THANK YOU MOM and DAD for everything,
love your son Joseph Pompa.
First off I'd like to thank my family (Mom, Dad, and Evan) for always being
there for me, pushing me to be my best, and supporting me m everything
I've done. But mostly, I want to thank my friends for making this the best
four years of my life. As a class we've all been through so much together,
and at times it's been pretty tough but somehow we've survived. To my
ladiezz on the tennis team, you guys have made these four seasons of
tennis amahhzing (SARS, cappy pappy, syb). To my teammates on the
volleyball team, good times bucs, this has been a crazy four years!! (KF.
AW. BW, JC, EP) To my BEST FRIENDS EVER. Tor, Ky. Alice - 1 honestly
don't know where to begin. I can't even imagine school without you. but
you guys know we've had some incredible adventures and I'm sure that
wherever the hell we end up going we'll always remember the good times
So thanks BHS for everything, it's been one crazy nde.

I would like to thank all my friends sincerely because high school would not
have been as good as it was without you guys. Also I would like to thank
my parents for supporting me these four long years; without them I surely
would not be on my way to college. High school was a learning process for
me, both educationally and socially, and because of my teachers, peers, and
parents, I feel like I am prepared to take the next step in advancing my
knowledge of the world. As Kurt Vonnegut said, "New knowledge is the
most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with,
the richer we become."
"And in the end it s not the years m your life that count. It's the life m your

I would like to thank my mom for supporting me throughout my whole life
and being there for me when I needed her, Also other family members
that were there and who wants me to be successful in life. I would like to
thank Mr. Sumner and Ms. Jasmine from my program for giving me many
new experiences and opportunities and the prep related classes that were
helpful for school. They pushed me to do well and make sure that I
achieved to the best of my ability. And thanks to all my friends: Arid,
Renee. and Ashley etc. for having this journey with me.
"He who has a 'why' to live for can bear with almost any 'how'." -
First off, thank you Mom and Dad for guiding me through school and
these first seventeen years of my life. Your internalized values that you
have taught me have laid the foundation for the person that I am today.
Thank you for instilling an appreciation and desire for education, hard
work, and self-betterment in me. Second, thank you to my teachers for
their unrelenting dedication, hard work, and time and effort that they put
forth to teach me. A special thanks to Mr. Sunderland for bringing
National History Day to Bedford High School, being a fantastic leader of
the project, and for facilitating the intellectual growth that characterized
my sleepless junior year. Finally, thank you to my friends for staying by my
side and keeping me entertained.

all my friends and family. Thanks guys! I love you all so much! I cannot wait

life. Dad. thank you for coaching me in soccer, basketball, and baseball, it

Will, and Alex, I would not have wanted to go through that process with
anyone else and to everyone else who has made an impact on me. without
any of you I would not be the person I am today.
Wow. I can't believe four years has gone by just like that. It feels like just
yesterday I was leaving for the first day of freshmen year. To start out if it
weren't for my family, friends, and God. I don't know what I woukJ've
done. Mom and Dad, if it weren't for you always pushing me to do my
best, I don't know how I would've made it through the past twelve years
of school. Also, I would like to thank all my friends, because they really
have always been there for me. and I will always be grateful for that.
Finally. I believe that God has helped me get through even the hardest
times during these years, and if it weren't for Him, I don't know where I'd
be. I love you all, thank you so much for everything.
Mom- Thanks for always being there for me in everything I do. You always
have the best advice and have made me the independent and outgoing

Mackenzie's) hair pink at 2AM. your creativity has rubbed off on me over
the years. I really appreciate all that you do. Anna- you are a true best
friend and I love how silly/ goofy we are together. I know you always have
my back. Courtney- "Ms.TotallyFlex", our connection since kindergarten
has only grown stronger and you will always be my "go-to* person for

person I am today and made my kfe so far exceedngty happy
If you are reading this senior thanks to see if you're in it, stop. Move on.
Everyone who has ever associated with me has in some small way helped
me become a better person and thus deserves to be thanked. The road
through high school has been full of its ups and its downs, and I certainly
would not have made it through without the wisdom and encouragement
of my peers, family, and faculty alike. Hopefully through their guidance I
have arrived at a higher point than where I stared four years ago. Most
importantly, thank you class of 2011. We've grown together since we
were toddlers and in 23 years I'll look back to these years with a bald head
and have something to smile about.
First, I want to thank God for sparing my life to see my senior year of High
School. I want to thank my family for their love and support. Also my
teachers and counselors who guided me through my high school career.
Especially Ms. G., I love you. Thanks to all my Metco. Bedford, and Base
family. For my friends who have been with me through the years, special
thanks to Ariel, Jessica, Ashley, Coretta. Yovanna and Cullen, I love you all. I
have mixed emotions -part of me is sad to leave, but I will be moving on to
a higher level in my education. Each of us has his or her own toolbox; it s
full of memories, experiences, accomplishments, and dreams. As we go off
in different directions, remember the only one who can close your toolbox
is YOU. There will always be room for more tools, more memories, new
experiences, greater accomplishments and yes, even bigger dreams. I'm
going to truly miss Bedford High but thank you all for my success.

MOM (and LUCY) - Even though we butt heads pretty much every day,
/ou're the greatest mom I could ask for. I am so grateful for everything
you have done for me, whether it be getting me to baseball practice,
helping me with my homework or working hard to provide for our family.
MRS.GIUSTI - Every day I came in you would always help me no matter
what, and for that I thank you. Without you. I'm positive that I would not
have made it through high school.
MRS. FORD - Thank you for putting up with me and helping me succeed
these past four years,
MR. ALPERIN - It's been nice to have someone to talk to about life, music
TYLER, JOSH. JUSTIN, DYLAN, NICOLE and MICHAELE - You guys are
